Tennessean by Al Showers 07 November 2006
Here is compiled list of problems at polls across the region:
Davidson County, Antioch High School precinct: Confusion over two state House districts delayed voting.
Gibson County: A precinct opened 30 minutes late.
Madison County, Jackson: Problems with voting machines and voters were asked to cast their ballots on paper.
Sumner County, Gallatin City Hall precinct: Precinct officer and former Mayor Robert Lankford reported two minor problems. “Somebody called in and complained that I told them how to vote,” Lankford said. “I am not dumb enough to tell people how to vote.” Also, one voter was turned away because he had moved from Sumner to Macon county, then back to Sumner and failed to change his registration.
Williamson County, Grassland precinct: Only two of the precinct’s three machines worked.
Williamson County, Nolensville United Methodist Church precinct: Only two of the precinct’s three machines worked.
Williamson County, Otter Creek Church of Christ precinct: Two volunteer workers didn't show up.
Hawkins County: Most of the voting machines were down until noon, according to Peggy Fleenor, the county's election administrator. The problem resulted after officials ran a program before opening to clear the vote totals to zero. Fleenor said all but three machines were working by Tuesday afternoon.
